When I was studying in Spain, I learned to value what life could offer aside from Sundays are for celebration and not for Netflix. Yeah that was right. Valencia is not blessed with vast tourist fame as much as Barcelona or Seville but for me, Valencia is like no other city I have lived before absolutely harmoniously combines the vibes of extraordinary futuristic neighborhood with unique charm of Gothic and renaissance spirit. In this ultimate experience, I will answer the most basic question ” What to do in Valencia?” based on my experience, feelings, and impressions, since the task is obviously complicated due to the fabulous range of historic, archaeological heritage of Valencia.

Must Visit Places in Valencia 

 

In the historic Carmen neighborhood Barrio del Carmen which is one of Valencia attractions, everything reminds about different cultures represented by different nationalities and races. Being a Spanish speaker, even so I feel the vibes of multicultural, cosmopolitan city where native people speak apart from the Spanish on their own Valencian language. Two languages are considered the official ones and because of this, all signboards are written in both languages. Quite interesting isn’t it?

Wandering through the streets of old town everyone definitely has to stop off for some drink and better to do it out on the terrace of one of the hundreds Barrio del Carmen charismatic and lovely cafe and bars.

Another must- visit location of Valencia is the oldest market in Europe – The famous Mercado Central. It is astonishingly stunning spot where it is possible to find any seasonal produce from all around the Valencia countryside. The best way to enjoy the inexpressible flavor of Valencia is to taste the local cheeses and the wonderful jamon, delicious paella, fresh seafood and vegetable not elsewhere but definitely on the market.

Traditional Valencian Dish. The Paella is the most worldwide well-known Valencian dish, but the gastronomy in this Spanish Region has a large variety of rice dishes. The traditional recipe in origin is very simple: chicken and rabbit meat, rice, green beans, Lima Beans, salt, saffron and olive oil...

Valencia Attractions

The symbol of Valencia is Cathedral, the masterpiece of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles. I remember climbing the Miguelete bell tower for breath taking view over the old town. There is an entrance fee of 5 Euro and clamber up more than 250 steps but believe me all efforts are worth it! The Cathedral cherishes carefully the precious relic – ancient bowl considered the holy grail.

As to me, Silk exchange or Lonja de la Seda in Spanish, the building of the 5th century should be included in any list of places to visit in Valencia especially because of enormous contract hall or Sala de Contratation, the striking space of which is lavishly decorated with amazing forest of twisted columns.

City of Arts and Sciences is another highlight of the city that includes a science museum, IMAX cinema, planetarium, opera house and marine park. I cn definitely recommend the futuristic , with space-like architecture entertainment and cultural complex as the right hot spot to spend a nice time.

Things To Do in Valencia

Among other things to do in Valencia? Please try to eat paella- the traditional dish of Valencia. In search of this gastronomic delight into Ernest Hemingway’s favorite restaurant La Pepica by Malvarosa beach that has open the doors more than a century ago.

Valencia is a city where I consider as my home.
